*Asian Highlands Perspectives *(*AHP*) is seeking articles and book reviews
for its sixth annual collection of essays.

About *AHP*:

*AHP* is a peer reviewed, open access, trans-disciplinary journal focusing
on the Tibetan Plateau and surrounding regions, including the Southeast
Asian Massif, Himalayan Massif, the Extended Eastern Himalayas, the
Mongolian Plateau, and other contiguous areas. Cross-regional commonalities
in history, culture, language, and socio-political context invite
investigations of an interdisciplinary nature not served by current
academic forums. *AHP* contributes to the regional research agendas of
Sinologists, Tibetologists, Mongolists, and South and Southeast Asianists,
while also forwarding theoretical discourse on grounded theory,
interdisciplinary studies, and collaborative scholarship.

*AHP* welcomes a wide range of submissions from those with an interest in
the area. Given the dearth of current knowledge of this culturally complex
area, we encourage submissions of descriptive accounts of local
realities – especially by authors from communities in the Asian
Highlands – as well as theory-oriented articles. We publish items of
irregular format – long articles, short monographs, photo essays, fiction,
auto-ethnography, etc. Authors receive a PDF version of their published
work. Potential contributors are encouraged to consult previous issues.


Expressions of interests: 20 February 2014

First drafts: 1 May 2014

Expected publication: late 2014

*AHP* is also seeking reviewers for the following books. Reviews will be
published on a rolling basis throughout the year, and hence we will accept
reviews at any time. Those completed before October 15, 2014 will also be
included in our annual volume. Please check with us first to ensure your
selected book is not already under review.
